What is MLS laser therapy?
MLS laser therapy is a noninvasive technique to relieve pain and inflammation with no downtime. Used for decades in Europe for pain management, laser therapy is now available in the United States as a drug-free option to manage pain. You may have heard of the treatment called cold laser therapy because the laser energy isn’t hot or painful.
Laser therapy uses the Multiwave Locked System (MLS), which harnesses the power of two therapeutic wavelengths. One wavelength addresses inflammation and swelling, while the other provides pain-relieving properties.
Together, these synchronized wavelengths penetrate deep into your tissues and nerves that are causing pain and inflammation, triggering a metabolic reaction in your cells to promote healing and provide pain relief.
MLS laser therapy may offer the added benefit of increasing the circulation of much-needed oxygen and blood in your treatment area. Increased circulation and blood flow may then promote healing in your cells and tissue, encouraging the formation of new, healthy tissue.
Conscious Chiropractic & Acupuncture offers this innovative, noninvasive modality to address a variety of painful health conditions and injuries.

What happens during MLS laser therapy?

Your session is brief, with most treatments taking an average of eight minutes. You can resume your usual routine immediately.
